1.6 The Closing. The closing of the purchase and sale of the Assets and the transactions relating thereto (the “Closing”), will take place by simultaneous exchange of
electronic or facsimile transmission of original signature pages on all documents and instruments required to be delivered pursuant to this Agreement with respect to the Closing, each of which will be deemed an original for all purposes. The date
of the Closing is referred to as the “Closing Date.” The effective time of the Closing is 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on the Closing Date (the “Effective Time”).
1.7 Purchase Price Adjustment. The Purchase Price will be subject to adjustment as provided in this Section 1.7 (the “Working Capital Adjustment”).
(a) Working Capital. “Working Capital” shall be determined on the following basis (the “Working Capital Methodology”):
Plus: Costs in Excess of Billings
Plus: Prepaid Assets
Plus: Billings in Excess of Costs
(b) Estimated Working Capital Adjustment. At least five (5) business days prior to the Closing Date, the Company will deliver to the Purchaser an estimated
statement of the Working Capital as of the close of business on the day prior to the Closing Date, which will be acceptable to the Purchaser in the Purchaser’s reasonable discretion (the “Estimated Working Capital”). If the Estimated
Working Capital is greater than the Working Capital Target, then, on the Closing Date, the Purchase Price will be increased on a dollar for dollar basis by an amount equal to the Estimated Working Capital less the Working Capital Target, and if the
Working Capital Target is greater than the Estimated Working Capital, then, on the Closing Date, the Purchase Price will be decreased on a dollar for dollar basis by an amount equal to the Working Capital Target less the Estimated Working Capital
(such adjustment, the “Estimated Working Capital Adjustment”).
(c) Closing Working Capital Adjustment.
(i) Within ninety (90) days following the Closing Date, the Purchaser will prepare and deliver to the Company, a reasonably detailed statement (the “Closing Working
Capital Statement”) of the Working Capital as of the close of business on the day prior to the Closing Date (the “Closing Working Capital”). Following the Closing Date, the Purchaser agrees that it will cooperate with the Company and
its advisors in making available to the Company and its advisors such books, records, financial information, work papers, and supporting data, as reasonably requested, in connection with the Company’s review of the Closing Working Capital.
(ii) The Company may deliver a written notice to the Purchaser within forty-five (45) days of the Company’s receipt of the Closing Working Capital Statement stating whether
the Company has any objections to the Closing Working Capital, describing in reasonable detail any objections thereto. Failure to give a timely objection notice (or written notification from the Company that it has no objection to the Closing
Working Capital Statement) will constitute acceptance and approval of the Closing Working Capital set forth therein, and such Closing Working Capital will be final and binding upon the parties.
(iii) If the Company notifies the Purchaser of any objection to the Closing Working Capital Statement within the time period set forth in Section 1.7(c)(ii), the
Purchaser and the Company will attempt in good faith to reach an agreement as to the matter in dispute. If such parties have failed to resolve any such disputed item within thirty (30) days after receipt of timely notice of such objection, then
any such disputed item will be submitted to and determined by an independent accounting firm selected by the Purchaser and the Company (the “Independent Accounting Firm”); provided, however, the parties may mutually agree on
an extended period to resolve any such dispute before submitting it to the Independent Accounting Firm. The Independent Accounting Firm will be given reasonable access to all of the records of the Company and the Purchaser to resolve any disputed
item regarding the Closing Working Capital Statement, and will be instructed to submit its determination in writing with respect to any disputed matters to the Purchaser and the Company within twenty (20) days. The Independent Accounting Firm will
address only those items properly disputed in accordance with Section 1.7(c)(ii) and the Independent Accounting Firm may not assign a value greater than the greatest value or lower than the lowest value for any such item claimed by the
Purchaser, on the one hand, or the Company, on the other hand. The Company and the Purchaser will be entitled to present any materials they deem appropriate to the Independent Accounting Firm, and to request a meeting, with all parties present (to
the extent such parties desire to be present in such meeting), to discuss their position. The fees and expenses of the Independent Accounting Firm incurred in resolving the disputed matter will be equitably apportioned by such accountants based on
the extent to which the Purchaser, on the one hand, or the Company, on the other hand, is determined by the Independent Accounting Firm to be the prevailing party in the resolution of each such disputed matter so that the non-prevailing party pays
a greater share of such fees and expenses. The Closing Working Capital Statement properly disputed under this Section 1.7(c)(iii) will, after resolution of such dispute pursuant to this Section 1.7(c)(iii), be final, binding and
conclusive on all parties.
(iv) If the Closing Working Capital as finally determined is greater than the Estimated Working Capital, the Purchaser will pay such excess on a dollar for dollar basis to
the Company in immediately available funds, and if the Estimated Working Capital is greater than the Closing Working Capital, such excess amount will be released to the Purchaser from the Working Capital Escrow Amount, with the balance of the
Working Capital Escrow Amount, to be paid by the Escrow Agent to the Company; provided, however, that in the event the Working Capital Escrow Amount is less than such excess amount, Sellers, jointly and severally, will pay such deficient amount on
a dollar for dollar basis to the Purchaser in immediately available funds (such final adjustment, the “Closing Working Capital Adjustment”). All payments pursuant to this Section 1.7(c) (iv) will be made from the Working Capital
Escrow Amount within five (5) days after the determination of Closing Working Capital becomes final and binding.
1.8 Earnout Payment.
(a) Calculation of Earn-Out Payment.
(i) Provided that each and every employee listed on Exhibit B or their replacements remain employed by the Purchaser on the first anniversary of the Closing Date,

Return. No claim has ever been made by an authority in a jurisdiction where the Company does not file Tax Returns that the Company is or may be subject to taxation by that jurisdiction. There are no Liens on any of the assets of the Company that

Set forth on Schedule 3.10(a) is a list of all Intellectual Property that is (i) related to the Assets or used in the Business, (ii) owned or purported to be owned by and registered in the name of the Company (“Company Owned IP”), or
of which the Company is a licensee or in which the Company otherwise has any right (“Company Licensed IP”), and (iii) a list of all agreements by which any of the Company Licensed IP is licensed by or to the Company (“IP Licenses”)
(excluding off-the-shelf software licensed under a shrink or click wrap license with an annual payment of less than $10,000). The Company (i) has performed all obligations required to be performed by it to date under the IP Licenses, (ii) there
are no defaults, and (iii) no event has occurred (or failed to occur) that, with the passing of time or the giving of notice or both would constitute a material default by the Company under any such IP License, including the consummation of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Each IP License is in full force and effect and constitutes a legal, valid, binding agreement of the Company (and to the Knowledge of the Company, each counter-party thereto), except that the
enforceability thereof may be subject to or limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, arrangement, moratorium, or other similar Laws relating to or affecting rights of creditors and general equitable principles. The Company is not subject
to any obligation, including any license or royalty obligation, relating to any product or service of the Business which the Company now markets or has marketed in the past three years, and the Company Owned IP is not subject to any restrictions or

applied for or registered Company Owned IP. None of the Business Intellectual Property has, infringed, misappropriated, diluted or otherwise violated, and does not infringe, dilute, misappropriate or otherwise violate, the Intellectual Property or
other rights of any Person. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.10, no claim by any third party contesting the validity, enforceability, use or ownership of the Business Intellectual Property by the Company has been made or is threatened. To

ownership of the Company. All employees and independent contractors (including consultants) who have participated in the development or creation of Intellectual Property on behalf of the Company have executed appropriate assignment agreements,
pursuant to which each such employee or independent contractor has assigned to the Company all of its rights, in and to all such Intellectual Property, ideas, inventions, processes, works of authorship and other work products that relate to the
